In this class, students will learn how to make a set of three decorative wall tiles, out of clay. By using hand-building techniques such as slab building, pinching, coils, slip and scoring, the tile will slowly blossom into a bouquet of flowers for the wall. Your instructor will demonstrate how to use studio equipment, such as the slab roller and tools. The first two class sessions will be focused on constructing the wall tiles. In the final and third-class sessions, the students will glaze their wallflower tiles. Your instructor will demonstrate glazing techniques at the start of the third session. Wearing older clothes or clothes that you are okay with getting dirty is encouraged. No prior experience is needed to take this class, just an open mind to the possibilities that can arise when working with clay!
The registration deadline is April 27th or when sold out. Fee: $90 to register + Materials fee: $10 paid to instructor during first class.
